Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild

  1. Sculpture in the Wild International Sculpture Park celebrates the rich environmental, industrial and cultural heritage of the Blackfoot Valley. Sculptors have been invited to create significant site-specific works of art using the materials - natural and industrial - that are associated with the community's economic and cultural traditions. Our film documents this immense project. The 2014 sculpture symposium brought together internationally respected symposium artists Steven Siegel (USA), Jorn Ronnau (Denmark), Alan Counihan (Ireland), Jaakko Pernu (Finland) and Kevin O'Dwyer (Ireland) on site to engage with it's landscape, exploring it's historical, environmental and industrial history through contemporary art practice. Lincoln, Montana, a community nestled in the Blackfoot Valley, has been the center of rich, often times conflicting social, cultural and environmental values. Mining, logging and ranching has been the key economic factors that have sustained the community throughout its history. As the logging and mining industries have subsided over the past 25 years the community finds itself at a crossroads in both economic and cultural development. Reflecting on it's history and looking towards the future, the community has chosen contemporary art practice to act as both a creative and economic catalyst.

  2. Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild was established in 2014 and now hosts some of the most innovative land and environmental art in Montana. The sculpture park is sited on 28 acres of woodlands outside Lincoln, Montana. The initial International Sculpture Symposium invited artists from Denmark, Finland, Ireland and the United States to respond to this unique landscape and industrial heritage. Our artist-in-residence program invites artists on a yearly basis to Lincoln to create significant artworks, both permanent and temporary, inspired by the rich and diverse cultural, environmental and industrial heritage of the Blackfoot Valley while fostering an awareness and appreciation of the arts through community engagement and education as well as our artist-in-residency program.

  3. In June 2015, Sculpture in the Wild hosted an Eco Actions Summer camp with artist and biologist Brandon Ballengee. Students participated in the 5 day camp that integrated multidisciplinary arts and science practices including visual arts, music, dance, culinary arts, geography, biology and ecology focused on local nature. As part of the summer camp the students created a naturalist journal during a field trip to the H2O Ranch. The field trip documented by Starrett Artists is featured in this film.
